his time to go Ricocheted off a tree? Was it an ironwood tree?

his time to go Ute got to be kidding me. The bullet ricocheted off a tree but went through the roof of the ute.

penis pump Sounds like he was just banging his gavel.

Year-end bonuses? Of course, just think of all the work they had to do in order to get gov't bailout packages and organize layoffs and benefit cuts. These poor execs have taken so much flak in the news; only a few mil could offset that. Just think, they might have to settle for a smaller yacht for Christmas.
